§ 21. Dr. Roger Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what steps he takes to ensure the adequacy of standards and even distribution of resources in the community care, health and social services sectors; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Mark Robinson
My right hon. Friend has increased the financial resources for the Health Service in Wales to record levels. To ensure that these resources are used effectively to improve patient care he has implemented the Griffiths report on the management of the NHS.
The provision of personal social services is the responsibility of individual local authorities.
